Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Hyde's book explains some of the economic theory which is relevant for modeling long run timber supply and the optimal allocation of forest land to timber production and to other uses, principally recreation. He applies this analysis to two case studies from the important Douglas fir region (roughly the area of Oregon and Washington west of the Cascade crest) which produces about one quarter of the nation's softwood timber...the book is well written. Hyde's prose is clear, and his style is accessible...used as a text in my graduate course in natural resource economics; the book was given consistently good reviews. Any economist concerned with timber supply and the management of public lands should read [this book].'
Journal of Economic Literature

'Hyde applies economic efficiency criteria to the management of forests, with an illustrative empirical case study of the Douglas fir forests of the Pacific Northwest... Highly recommended for graduate and undergraduate students. The index is excellent and includes abbreviations, which is a boon to the reader.'
